Magnesium alloy build is sexy. It's portable and sturdy and that's all I wanted. Not very tall though. It's good and all but I recommend the Amazonbasics HJ-285. It's taller and thicker and as sturdy as this one at just around 6.5k. the only negative being it's made of aluminum which isn't really that big of a deal.
I baught this tripod through amazon but as mentioned in description, it can't load gears up to 6 kg. i mounted my nikon d7200 and nikkor 200 500 total weight of 3.2 kg but it can not hold them steadily. So i don't recommend this tripod for birding or wild life photo graphy.
